FREE. Drop in.

Turn up, dress up, meet up at this costume-themed event run by young people (our Creative Consultants) for young people.

I heart...

We all love a chance to dress up from time to time but what is it about dressing up that makes it so popular? 

This Saturday you'll have the chance to:

  • design your own t-shirt with the fantastic Zara Khalique
  • become a piece of art as you chat over a cup of tea at our Regency-style tea party
  • make an I heart... badge to tell the world what you care about
  • dress up and make customised photographic correspondence cards
  • stumble across our lovely Regency ladies who'll give you tips on etiquette and tell you the hot gossip about Grayson Perry and the Visual Dialogues exhibition

Visual Dialogues: Young People and artists interpreting art together

This display features the gallery's two recently purchased artworks by Grayson Perry: a large ceramic vase Jane Austen in E17 and one of his first major etchings, Print for a Politician.

Co-curated by The Creative Consultants, a group of young people aged 15-18, and artist Jim Medway, the display uses film, text and unusual objects to make links between these exciting contemporary artworks and rarely seen examples of historic costume, prints and ceramics from our collections.

Visual Dialogues is a partnership programme managed by Tate Britain working with regional museums and galleries. The programme is funded by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and the Department for Children, Schools and Families as part of the Strategic Commissioning Programme for Museum and Gallery Education.
